Indians Making Final Effort To Sign Sabathia

Before trading ace starter C.C. Sabathia, the Indians intend to make one final attempt to sign him long-term.  Ed Price notes that Sabathia does not want to discuss a contract during the season and the Indians won’t be ponying up Johan money.

The sides last negotiated in February.  The Indians offered four years and around $68-72MM, plus a bonus for his ’08 salary.  Will the Indians crack and offer a fifth year?
